Tips for Student Success
Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we get ready to start the second semester of the school year, we want to emphasize that successful students benefit from a strong school-home partnership. After 18 months of blended and distance learning, some of our students have needed time to readjust to the routine of school.
Teachers and schools are doing everything they can to help students be successful. However, each student must take personal responsibility for their education. We have created the Believe and Achieve Tips for Student Success resource to emphasize the mindset needed to succeed.
Additionally, we wanted to encourage you to continue to take an active role in your child’s education. Here are some ways you can help.
Make sure students are at school and on time. Attendance is the foundation of success in school.
Students need to learn to manage their time and workload. This is part of becoming a high school student.
Check Infinite Campus and Schoology for grades and attendance.
Check-in with your student regularly - have them show you what they are doing.
You can find the Achieve and Believe Tips for Student Success in THIS DOCUMENT.
Tutorial Schedule: Semester 2
We are making some revisions to our tutorial schedule for Semester 2. Once we have an updated tutorial schedule, we will send it out ASAP.

Asking for help is a sign of STRENGTH Wolf Pack!!

Loss of Privilege Policy
Loss of Privilege (LOP) List: This exists to support the idea that our primary function is “Academics First” and that student behaviors and choices need to prioritize attendance and following school rules. Students may earn their way off of the LOP list through attendance at detention and / or Saturday school after talking with their Assistant Principal. They can also lose a privilege that was granted (i.e. serving Saturday School to be eligible to purchase a Dance Ticket, but then repeat actions (or new actions) that put them back on LOP so that attending Dance is no longer available to them and a dance ticket refund is issued). All students begin Semester 2 off the list. Totals from Semester 1 do not count for Semester 2.
